Advice From Barcelona's First Women's Coding School Founder: Featuring Katrina Walker

See It To Be It

This week on See It To Be It,  we talk to Founder and CEO of CodeOp.tech Katrina Walker. Growing up in Silicon Valley, Katrina knew from a young age she was interested in a career in the sciences. After going through different careers paths in Psychology to Cultural Anthropology, she sought after a greater challenge for herself through Data Science. Afterwards, she went on to found CodeOp, Barcelona’s first coding school specifically for women and non-binary people.  CodeOp’s mission is to provide resources and support for women wanting to educate themselves remotely on coding. Katrina hopes for CodeOp to become the first international coding school for womxn.  Katrina’s personal path was nonlinear, but throughout the journey she collected different skills along the way. This episode, she talks to us about the power of remote learning, the constant search for knowledge and listening to your passions when they are calling out to you.  To learn more about Katrina, check her out on LinkedIn and visit coreop.tech for more on her company. Katrina on the gap in data education specifically serving women: _6:41 “..Coding schools are worldwide, but according schools that specifically serve women are less than 1%.” Katrina on the difference between her company and ones she has worked for: _10:42 “100%. It's powerful. You know, I'm part of other business groups that are better coed. It's a completely, totally different experience. No lot more arrogance and, um, let you know less humility. And when we want to learn from one another, it's fantastic. I could just hear someone say how much they've struggled while trying to raise around. That's where the valuable information is.” — On The Dot Woman Content Corner Looking for more tips, motivation and direction?

INDIE REVIEW RADIO

Katrina Walker is an outstanding example of how to beat the odds when they are stacked against you. As an entrepreneur, philanthropist, and motivator, she took being a witness to cultural, domestic, and financial tumult and converted what she learned into a motivational tool to fight victimhood. Walker went from being a struggling teen bride, to a divorced mother of four, to a trailblazer who has over the past 25 years built thriving enterprises; including a 24-hour day care center, multiple real estate holdings, a record label, and state-of-the-art recording studio-all while becoming a self-made millionaire. Her renowned Tennessee based RainbowKidz Learning Center is currently expanding into a national brand. For over the past two decades her philanthropic, hands-on support has helped turn hardworking individuals into successful business owners; providing them with step-by-step guidance on how to start a business, hire employees, manage a budget, select locations, and take advantage of marketing to realize their full earning potential. The experience of being in an abusive relationship, both mental and physical, allowed her a keen sense for spotting those in similar crisis, and out of this has grown yet another community supportive enterprise at Walker's helm: the BE (Blind Eye) Foundation. Katrina Walker has taken adversity and transformed her life into a true American success story. She now continues on her mission to help others find their own positive transformations. Walker is writing her memoir with award-winning journalist Clarence Waldron, former Jet senior writer and editor, who was mentored by the late best-selling author and poet, Dr. Maya Angelou.
